Raptor ForceBook - 2006
In an effort to bring order and balance to the world, the United States has entered an agreement with the international community under which no nation can act militarily outside its borders without a formal authorization from the United Nations. Unfortunately, only nations have subscribed to this noble idea.
When a plane is hijacked and flown into a Denver skyscraper, the United Nations refuses to sanction reprisals unless the United States can supply an impossible amount of proof.
With his hands tied, the president takes a page from FDR's playbook, when the independent Flying Tigers battled Japan while America officially stayed uninvolved. He taps General Buck Peighton to create a strike force made up of loners, cowboys, and misfits who were too antisocial even for the special forces.
